Yes, you are probably wise to wait but if you do wish to take a pregnancy test to put your mind at rest then it could well be worth doing straight away.

There are actually some early pregnancy tests available that can show results up to a week before your next period is due, but the most advisable action is to wait until your period is actually late, even by a few days, before you take a home test.

Pregnancy tests can be bought for a fairly reasonable price from most supermarkets, healthcare shops and pharmacies. As with anything concerning your health it is important to make sure you have read the directions in the kit before taking the test. This will make certain your test result is a valid one.

If the test is negative, and therefore shows you are not pregnant, and you are still feeling stomach cramps that are worst than normal, it is advised that you make an appointment with your doctor. With any medical concern the sooner it is checked out the faster the recovery can be. It will also help put your mind at rest and avoid you endlessly googling and finding out horrific things it more than likely isn't.

Don't worry darling, that is often the cause of a late period, worry.  The body recognizes this and may throw things out of wack.  Don't worry, wait a bit.  If period comes, the likelyhood you are pregnant is very low.  Take it easy and try not to think about it

I think you should wait a week or so usually cramping means you could start soon so give it a few days don't worry

You should wait a week before taking a test, especilaly if you are not bleeding cramping and a missed period can be signs of pregnancy, this is becouse the womb is making space, but if you are bleeding this can be the sign of chemical pregnancy( occurs in 50% of pregnancies) it a very early miscarriage so to speak, but cramping and no bleeding could also be the signs of you missing ovulation as you didnt produce an egg last month, there are lots of reason to y you are having a late period stress change in diet and lack of iron being a just a few,
don't stress youself to muchj nad you could induce the late experience hope you got somthing usefull out of this x

Wait a few more days. Sometimes your cycle messes up.

Though I had cramping and that feeling of period about to start when I got pregnant with my son :/

You need to wait about a week to do the test after  your period was suppose to start. Now you can have a blood test 3 days after your period is suppose to start as well and it is more accurate. It is to early right now.

There are tests that can detect the hormone in your urine up to 5 days before you start, but if you are cramping, I would give it a couple of more days

I feel the same way cramping 2 days lae and sore nipples plus bloated stomach and cranky. Why I'm thinking my period is coming soon is just taking a few days. Possibility of being pregnant low even do I have a hubby and I'm 27 no children. Give it 4 days it doesnt come you might be low in iron or you are pregnant.
